The Physical Therapy Department at Memorial Hospital of Carbon County can help you prevent injury, maintain function, or regain function lost due to an illness or injury.
Our services include:
- Job placement assessment. An evaluation of physical capabilities to determine whether a future employee is appropriately able to complete tasks necessary for a position.
- Education. Educational programs are designed to teach proper body mechanics and compensatory techniques to help prevent injuries.
- Physical therapy. An active, aggressive approach to rehabilitation including modalities, exercise and manual techniques.
- Functional capacity assessment. A tool to ensure worker safety by objectively measuring and quantifying individual sage capacities.
- Reconditioning. A one- to two-hour daily regimen for clients who have been physically unable to work for less than two months.
- Advanced rehabilitation. An exercise regimen that takes place after the first phase of therapy ends and is designed to restore a high level of activity and function.
- Work hardening. A program that simulates real work tasks, which are broken down for training in their component parts. Workers gradually increase training time from 2- to 8-hour days to prepare for resuming normal work activities.
- Special purpose assessment. A conclusive test used along with a job analysis to determine the client's progress and assess whether he or she is physically capable to return to previous work.
A doctor's referral is required to receive physical therapy. Call us for more information.
Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m.
